I enjoyed the movie. Not a great movie, but good. It showed a lot of insight into the relationship of Hitch and Alma. As with any movie, I'm not sure how accurate it was historically, but it was a good story. And Helen Mirren still looks good in a bra and half-slip, straightening her stockings.

Terrific from the begining to the end. Hopkins genius prevails!

I have rad the reviews and I do not agree. I saw the movie yesterday, and it kept me riveted for its length.

I would grade the film a B. I was disappointed. Both Hopkins and Mirren have better performances. (I generally go see any film they act in.) I remember the Alfred Hitchcock TV show and to me Hopkins is a pale immitation. JY

The movie has its diversions, including Scarlett Johansson's bodacious Janet Leigh and Michael Stuhlbarg's wheedling Lew Wasserman. It's fluff. But while its dim fantasies about Hitchcock and the association of genius with psychosis can be written off as silly, they also smack of spiteful jealousy. Full Review
